Martiel's Bio:

In 2010, Martiel Beatty was all set to pursue a doctorate in applied anthropology. Then, tragedy struck: she was involved in a car accident that left her with severe damage to her head, back, and legs.

Martiel suddenly found herself stricken with epileptic seizures, memory issues, and chronic pain, and facing an uncertain future. Her once sharp, analytical mind struggled to retain information. Yet, her creativity and imagination seemed to be on overdrive. Always an artist at heart, she saw this as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.

Over the next few months, Martiel poured herself into her art and soon decided to start an online art school and community — The Artcademy. At a time when digital marketing was just finding its legs, Martiel worked day and night to develop innovative solutions to effectively promote her business.

Soon others, inspired by Martiel’s success, began to ask her advice on marketing. For the next 7 years, she coached and mentored numerous entrepreneurs on how to build their brands, enhance their visibility online, and increase their profits — all while growing The Artcademy into a thriving enterprise.

In May 2017, she decided to take her coaching services to the next level and formed a new company, MB Branding Solutions. Today, backed by a dedicated team of marketing professionals, Martiel offers her expertise and services to business owners throughout the country.
